Open Sources Show Notes for December 5, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting back to basics. Scotty Hertz will be back at the controls as we catch up with old friends in Ottawa, and old friends in Washington D.C., and the surprising way both those friends crossed paths this week. After that, we’ll talk to another old friend from Guelph City Council and ask about the recently wrapped up budget process at City Hall.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 7, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the state of the union is deeply cynical with a hint of despair. We’ll talk about Trump’s latest attempt to pivot to presidential, and we’ll talk about the Ford government’s latest pivot away from transparency. After the break, we’ll consider if a serial killer can teach us something about the present tolerance for the queer community, and if a city councillor not taking the bus can tell us something about our transit system.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017

There’s some big trouble brewing on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. No, no one on this show has broken the law, but someone that was once in the Trump administration sure did!

And finally, no laws were broken during the passing of the city budget this week, but some feelings were probably hurt.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 25, 2017

A couple of big, ongoing political storylines are coming to a head on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. Our favourite wildly unqualified President of the United States is been on his first field trip and making new friends (glad that he and the Pope finally buried the hatchet as seen above), and this weekend, the cliffhanger on the leadership of a major Canadian political party will finally be answered. In other news, we’ll welcome an old friend to the show and get the lowdown on the latest goings on with our local government.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 25, 2017”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 5, 2016

PKP

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the general theme is dysfunction. In Quebec, some chaos has been created in the provincial legislature with the sudden resignation of a major party leader. In Ottawa, mystery was created as a suddenly unsullied senator returns to work still under a cloud of uncertainty. And here in Guelph, one of the persons mentioned in the kerfuffle last week at council will try to get back on track in doing the good work for the city. This week, we’ll do what we can to overcome internal strife and talk the issues. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 5, 2016”
